The Most Effective,Most Lightweight
Lead-Free Protective Material Ever
Introducing Xenolite 800 NL
Lightweight Meets Lead-Free
XENOLITE “NL” is a lead-free, super-lightweight, flexible and recyclable x-radiation protection material, using a mixture of two attenuating elements, antimony and tungsten, in a mixture optimized for minimum area-weight and maximum attenuation in the key diagnostic imaging range of 80-100 kv.
Protecting You From Radiation, While Saving the Planet
The lead-free material is not “cross-linked” (or “cured”) and is therefore fully recyclable, and thermally re-processable, or may be disposed of as a non-hazardous, non-toxic waste, in municipal landfills.
This advanced new technology is a game-changer
The attenuating elements, in fine powder form, are supported, encapsulated and homogeneously distributed in a tough-but-flexible, high-tech plasticized Dow elastomer matrix. This Dow-DuPont developed elastomer carrier was selected in 2012 after a year of R&D as having the best balance of toughness, flexibility, durability, and cracking resistance, and is more commonly used for flexing components (e.g. running shoes, wire and cable).
